Elephant Tote Bag Kit

Our Elephant tote embroidery kit is a great starter kit for beginners to stitch their own gorgeous tote bag. 

This DIY kit includes all the materials you need to learn the techniques of hand embroidery. The navy blue tote bag included is ethically sourced and organic, and the DMC threads make the colourful design really stand out from the crowd. Our Elephant design uses 10 embroidery stitches - and the helpful guide shows you all the techniques you need to complete your own fancy piece of hand embroidery. Plus, you can show off your fancy new shopper while out and about!

FREE shipping if you spend over £30

Standard shipping is £1.49

    1. Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible: the tote bags are pre-made and Earth Positive® (organic and GOTS certified), with sustainable packaging, and recycled postal mailers.
    2. All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - buying from us means supporting a small, female founded business.

    3. All of our kits - from super simple to intermediate - include a detailed booklet, with lots of photos to teach you each stitch. If videos are more your style, there’s video tutorials covering every stitch you’ll need in our ‘Stitches’ blog.

    4. The kit includes a high quality reference photo of the finished design, and an easy to follow key showing you which stitches and colours to use.

    5. Each kit includes a quality 8 inch wooden hoop and plenty of DMC thread (so don’t worry if you make a mistake or want to practice first!).

    6. Our kits come with a pre-printed pattern to stick onto your fabric. It’s water-soluble, so you simply stitch over it, then wash it away (don’t worry, the threads are coloursafe!). Our patterns aren’t printed directly onto the fabric - we’ve done our research, and haven’t found any fabric printers that can tell us exactly where their fabric comes from and how it’s made. That’s important to us - so we found another way!

    7. Embroidery is a helpful tool for encouraging mindfulness and giving you some extra head space. Our kits aim to gently teach you lifelong skills and get your creative juices flowing (even if you’re not a ‘crafty’ person!).

    8. We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs.

Loved this

The product was exactly as described, beautifully packaged and arrived within days. Plenty of thread and really great instructions, I’m new to embroidery and struggled with a neat chain stitch but these instructions have helped me nail it! The paper washed straight out at the end without having to pick at it and my elephant looks like the picture . Definitely recommend to anyone, and will be ordering again! Thank you X

Very helpful customer service and great products

Royal Mail lost the package, so I was sent another straight away via special delivery (to arrive before Xmas) after query was raised. Very helpful service and really nice product!

Beautiful and easy to do

Being a beginner at embroidery I thought I was being a bit ambitious with this, but the instructions were clear and easy to follow and the result is beautiful! I’ll definitely be ordering more from this company, the kit arrived within a couple of days of ordering and was certainly good value for money.

THIS TOTE IS SO ADORABLE! I'm sending it to my mum and I made another for my partner's mum and I think the designs came out wonderfully even though I'm a beginner. This is a wonderful kit if you're at all crafty and looking for something to spend your time on that makes a very cute gift.
